Abstract:

The cuprous-bromide-catalyzed reaction of t-butyl perbenzoate and bicyclo-3.2.1-octene-2 I results in the formation of exoaxial -bicyclo-3.2.1-oct-3-en-2-yl benzoate IIIa which contains 1 of the endo isomer. Optically active I gives racemic IIIa which means that the allylic carbon atoms C2 and C4 are completely randomized. These results are consistent with the Kochi mechanism i.e., abstraction of an allylic hydrogen atom to give the symmetrical bicyclo3.2.1oct-3en2-yl radical II which is stereoselectively converted to racemic exo benzoate IIIa. Progress is also reported of studies concerning the solvolysis of alpha-p-anisylethyl p-nitrobenzoate ROCOC6H4NO2 under various conditions. Author
